Sy Scholfield quotes from the German book "Das Vaterland der Sachsen; Mittheilungen aus Sachsens Vorzeit und Gegenwart, Volume 3" [The homeland of the Saxons; With divisions from Saxony past and present] by Eduard Sommer (Blochmann, 1840), p. 1: "Es war gerade am Namenstage der hohen Wöchnerin, am 27. Januar 1805, als München den Kanonendonner, der ¾9 Uhr abends begonnen, mit frohem Erstaunen eine Stunde später sich erneuen hörte."

Translation: On their day of birth, 27 January 1805, Munich heard the thunder of cannons, starting at a quarter to 9 o'clock in the evening, then to joyful astonishment renewed one hour later.
